The antennae are whitish, faintly and suffusedly ringed with fuscous. The basal joint is shortly rough-scaled anteriorly. The thorax is white and the abdomen is whitish-grey. The forewings are fuscous, suffusedly streaked with dark fuscous between the veins. There is a narrow white costal streak running from the base to near the apex. The veins are more or less marked with ill-defined irregular white lines. The hindwings are grey.[2]
